    If you just want a starter set, get cool gray prismacolors. I got 10, 30, 50, 70, 90 and I use my own thick black sharpies (or whatever's handy) for black.

    prismas are alright, they have good color but dry out fast ive used them along time but have moved onto tria markers, they are more juicy allowing longerlasting life and they have 3 tips instead of 2 although the only tips ever worth using is the broad one, but what makes them great is they can be refilled so u never have to buy markers again and refills are like 99 for a bottle of whatever, they have real nice warm greys

    I generally work with prismas, they came out with NEW FINE TIPS which is amazingly awesome and also meant they work now. which is kinda a shock. I suggest getting a pack of greys. All you effectivle need is every second opacity but i tend to get the whole boxes any way because the first three 10% 20% and 30% i find very usefull especially when doin an underdrawing. But myabe thats just me.
